Girl Scouts @ Home

20_HomepageHeroes_960x420_GS at Home

As Girl Scouts, we live by the motto "be prepared" - and that includes when the unexpected happens. The safety and well-being of our members and their families are of paramount importance as we all navigate through the COVID-19 situation together. While we ask that all members continue to follow the guidance of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and their local health officials and cease in-person meetings, we want to deliver the opportunity for Girl Scouting to continue at home.

Below you'll find more information on how girls, their families and troop leaders can continue to participate in Girl Scouting at home or virtually until we are able to meet again in person.

Wondering how to talk to your kids about coronavirus? Read this Raising Awesome Girls article from GSUSA for tips.
